Tony’s speciality is rush seating, and his many years experience mean he can produce a rush seat that’s not only attractive, but also hard wearing and long lasting.
Tony’s recently worked on restoring Mackintosh furniture for the Glasgow School of Art and his work as a master craftsman is in high demand.
As well as using high quality rush from the River Thames, Tony can weave seats using danish cord or sea-grass.
Each summer, with a band of helpers, they gather rushes from the River Thames. Once the rushes are dry any surplus is available for sale to other rush weavers.
